In an alpine pasture in Lecco’s Valsassina region, the female presence and hand dominate a small but complex production system that revolves around the fertile fruit that belongs to the cow. This system is observed through the eyes of Ela, a young border collie who experiences long waits and short zealous spurts among the pastures that will favor her a caress, a sip of milk… and a restorative, itinerant sleep among visions and distorted presences.
